    Older Brunswick two piece pool cue.

    Made by Dufferin. 70's or 80's, unsure. Look at similar Duffs for pricing.

    How to make 3c cool?

    You mean anyone good or just anyone? My primary cue is a Kilby, I have both pool and carom shafts. The pool shafts have a conical taper also. Sometimes I think I hear thunder on a especially good strike, but maybe that's just the drugs...

    Vintage cue ID help

    I have the almost the same cue as the middle one, red veneer instead of blue, with the olive/brown case. Mint condition, closet queen. Glad y'all are less lazy than me about getting the darlings identified. :giggle: Only Schmidt cue catalog picture I am able to find is from 1969, not it.

    Do cue tips go bad over time?

    I've found 70's and 80's cues with what could have been the original tip. What failed (quickly) was the glue job. Don't know how to compare eight years to forty or fifty, but you say it seems to work so I wouldn't sweat it.

    Why buy a custom cue over a national brand?

    Local makers are part of their community and support everyone else by doing repair work. I'm grateful to be lucky enough to drive a short distance and get anything at all done. He will be doing a conversion once I get off my ass and figure out the specs.

    Tipping on table time?

    I tip solid to strong on table time. However, I don't eat or drink much because of diabetes, and also have worked tip jobs for the last thirty years.

    What would you do here?

    Same. The position zone for B/A is large and easy to get to. Also keeps the 9 out of the way.

    Willie Hoppe cue

    What a witty and informative reply! I don't claim to know anything about anything, just trying to help a brother out. Care to elaborate? That whole website is very interesting to me, lots of visual evidence that this guy *may* know something about these Hoppe cues.
